Crisp white sheets, shiny white marble, bright white walls – The Marmara Park Avenue is your very own sleek white canvas when visiting New York’s most iconic borough. This high-rise certainly boasts a flair of its own. Accommodations are sleek and unique, thanks to custom furnishings, local art and thoughtful extras – including individual iPad Airs, connected to guest services 24/7, with the New York Times and Wall Street Journal. The 295-square-foot Guest rooms sit on floors 12 through 17 and feature a Murphy queen bed, while 310-square-foot Deluxe guestrooms, on the same floors, feature a king bed and wet bar.The 676-square-foot One-Bedroom lofts come with more closet space, fully equipped kitchens and stainless-steel appliances. Each of these has a king bed with premium bedding. The wellness center is a highlight: there’s a 800-square-foot subterranean lap pool as well as a semi-warm relaxation room, experience shower, and Turkish hammam on hand to help you decompress. If you’d rather work up a sweat, hit the fitness center, which features state-of-the-art equipment. The hotel’s best feature, though, is the address – and you’ll soon find the Marmara as suited for taking front and center as letting you take Manhattan.
In the Area
With its proximity to Grand Central, just over 10 blocks away, and its location on the top end of the trendy up-and-coming NoMad (north of Madison Square Park) neighborhood, The Marmara Park Avenue puts you right in the middle of things. Also stay near iconic attractions like the Empire State Building, Fifth Avenue shops, the aforementioned park (a local favorite) and world-renowned restaurants and bars. These are available in surrounding Midtown, while the numerous subway lines from the iconic train station will take you to pretty much any other neighborhood.
How to Get There
In Murray hill, which is my favorite place to stay in NY, you have a lot to choose from, and we try out different hotels every year, so this was our first time stay at the Marmara, which had only been open for two years to my understanding. The service was very good. The rooms were extremely big in New York measure, and the location was perfect. There is a nice rooftop bar, it actually was the grand opening when we were there, and I saw a lot of potential, which maybe I’ll be able to enjoy next year around.
Where do I begin? This place is a true gem. We started the stay for a month because my children are models and ended up leaving with family. The staff are incredible. The hotel is swanky and a place for celeb sightings. The hotel was so accommodating providing cribs and high chairs for my children in our room. The beds were so comfortable. The rooms are spacious and luxurious. The room service and cleaning services were spectactular. The indoor pool and hammam was a nice perk but did I mention how amazing the staff was?!
We have just returned from 5 nights in NY and stayed at this fab hotel!! Really comfortable, spacious room and fantastic location.
Everything was really easy to get to and the beautiful air conditioned lobby/bar area was a wonderful relief after a hot day out.
When we checked out we had a fairly hefty bill. Drinks and room service (obviously expected) but also a daily service charge which apparently we should have been aware of?!
We had a great stay though and the lovely roof top bar was a real added bonus!
Staff were also great and really attentive.
Amazing to have an nespresso coffee machine in room too.
This hotel is amazing. Don’t have a bad word to say about it to be honest. Very central. Easy to get around. Nice part Of town. What we paid was very affordable for the city in general, but had such a lovely room. Great bathroom and shower with nice toiletries. The pool area is also nice and a luxury in the city. Staff are nice, friendly and helpful. We had a balcony with a view of the Empire State Building. Really added to our trip. Sat outside and ate breakfast there every morning. Comfy beds, spacious rooms for nyc. There is a trader joes 3 mins walk away which is good for picking up snacks etc. Also is quite high tech- iPads to control the room, order room service etc. Will 100% stay here again!
What a Fantastic hotel, with truly excellent service!!! My son and I came down to see a Yankee Game. Not being from the city i want to begin by telling you there is a women by the Name of Viviana who is Truly Exceptional!!! Prior
To coming down, I was nervous about taking the subway. She was so extremely sweet and considerate not only making sure I knew how to get around, but went and grabbed me a
metro card ( i gave her cash ) and made sure I had the right amount of money on it!!! What an Absolute Professional and so kind to go above and beyond!!! The Rooms are Beautiful very spacious and clean!!! The 2 very large queen beds were so very comfortable and the Bathroom was new and well done! The pool and Turkish Spa you will love!!! Stay here, you will love it especially if your coming in to see a Yankee Game and want an easy commute by subway to the game!!! Thank you Maramara for an Amazing Experience!!!
